Tag-based notifications

Tag notifications are notification messages that are targeted to all the devices that are subscribed to a particular tag.

Tags-based notifications allow segmentation of notifications based on subject areas or topics. Notification recipients can choose to receive notifications only if it is about a subject or topic that is of interest. Therefore, tags-based notification provides a means to segment recipients. This feature enables you to define tags and send or receive messages by tags. A message is targeted to only the devices that are subscribed to a tag.

You must first create the tags for the application, set up the tag subscriptions and then initiate the tag-based notifications. For more information, see Setting up tag-based notifications.

For more information about sending tag-based notification, see Tag-based notification section in Sending push notifications.
